No idea where you get your information from Midtown Mark. But before Beth Wade took over even with the opening of the pyramid the MSC was profitable. She drove away the Riverkings and Wrestling by her mismanagement.
That is now close to $10 million less than the estimated cos tot tear it down and replace it with a smaller all purpose arena..
Poe and DeAngelo are two great ambassadors for our program. Tommy West must be very proud of how well many of his players have turned out.

Just double checked that picture is NOT 55/Crump as i suspected. The picture is taken from a closed down Hotel on Alston street where trucks go down a access road adjacent to a residential neighborhoods to go back and forth from north end of Presidents Island. It is clearly marked President Island on the exit sign. So why does TDOT feel they need to lie to the people. the ONLY back up surrounding 55/Crump is through the construction areas. Can leave my house in Hornlake go I-55 all the way and be sitting in the Grandstands at Riverside Speedway in West Memphis in under 45 minutes with no problems. Most of the time in under 30 minutes.
Do not know who he is trying to fool but the picture above is NOT a picture of the Crump I-55 interchange. I have traveled that intersection for years and most Saturday night from Mississippi north bound on 55 to the old bridge. That looks like an intersection from Presidents Island not and Crump.
Why does TDOT feel the need to show a false picture to get their way in a situation.
A round-a-bout is designed to take the place of a 4 ways stop intersection. eliminating the need to turn across on coming traffic. They would create more of a traffic jam than a cloverleaf ramp system where you do NOT have to cross against on coming traffic. This is the most idiotic idea i have ever heard.
